New in version 22.50

Post by Gerhard Huber »

Improvements:
  • On macOS native support of Apple Silicon/ARM
  • File formats
    • Raw Import
      • Brightness curve is matched to the preview image of the raw
      • Automatic histogram correction works finer
    • PDF import and export
      • The export can save its settings as presets
      • Inverted clipping with text layers is saved as vector paths
      • Simple vector patterns are exported more efficiently
      • CMYK-JPEGs are better handled when importing and exporting
    • JPEG export: In the settings there is now a "Save paths" option to export clipping paths
    • SVG export: Inverted clipping with text layers is saved as vector paths
    • DXF import: LWPOLYLINE is supported
    • AVI-Import: On Windows AVI files are now loaded via the operating system if necessary
  • Tools
    • Liquify: Works significantly faster
    • Flood Fill: Mouse-dragging changes the tolerance
    • Layer tool: When scaling a layer, it can also be mirrored
    • Brush editor: Instead of the inner radius, the brush hardness is now set
    • Rotate view: Rotates faster
    • Japanese text input: On macOS the Japanese text input has been improved
  • Menu functions/filters
    • Curves
      • The selected point is now marked by a vertical line
      • For the sum curve, the single channel curves are now also displayed
      • Click and drag in the document creates a new curve point and modifies it directly
      • Several curve points can be selected and modified
    • Scaling dialogs: The settings can be saved as presets
    • Levels: The limits for the automatic correction can be set
    • Perturbation: The mask now controls the strength of the perturbation and not the blending
    • Lens Correction: Lensfun with scaling option and without pixel doubling at the image border
    • Color Lookup: Entries are sorted alphabetically
    • Set Color Profile: Sorting ignores upper/lower case
    • Path Painting: Supports painting matrix
    • Calendar: For the pocket calendar you can now choose between 4x3 and 6x2
  • Browse and panels
    • Browse
      • If the keyword list is active, the keywords of the selected files are marked
      • Folders can be opened via the context menu in Explorer/Finder
    • Layer List
      • Click and drag the eye symbol to change the visibility of subsequent layers
      • If several layers are selected, a single click on a layer makes it the only selected layer
      • If several layers are selected, Alt+click will keep the selection, but the active layer will change
    • Layer Attributes
      • If the pivot point is visible, the size is changed according to the settings relative to the pivot point
      • The clipping settings now also work with a multiple selection
    • Document Attributes: When switching to document mode, CMYK images remain in CMYK mode
    • Color lists: Files can be dragged directly onto the list
    • Text styles: An assigned text style can now be removed
  • User interface
    • Docked dialogs
      • Dialog stacks now automatically adjust their size. To do this, a dialog stack must be docked on the left or right and use the available height completely.
      • On Windows, dialog stacks also resize when the main window is scaled
    • Toolbar: The toolbar can now also be single-column
    • Sliders: Under Windows the sliders are now drawn by PhotoLine and look better
    • Adjustment Layer dialog: On Windows, the scrollbar is only displayed when needed
    • Screen output: Rotated 1-bit images are displayed better when reduced in size
  • Miscellaneous
    • Path groups: Now also support distortions
    • Scripting
      • On Windows, Visible of IApplication now also activates PhotoLine
      • Page and document now also support ShowOperationDialog (Windows) and "show operation dialog" (macOS)

Bug fixes:
  • Batch Rename: Text field was multiline
  • Layer List, search: Search was reactivated automatically when the search field lost input focus
  • Placeholder, Set Color Profile: A set profile didn't "overwrite" an embedded one
  • Color Picker: Automatiic size unified
  • Layer > New Layer, placeholder: Placeholders always got the size 0
  • Paint tool, gray pattern, RGB image: Image was not filled correctly
  • Shape list, loading: Complex shapes may not have been loaded
  • Open dialog, Windows: If the predefined path was invalid (e.g. a Unix path), the dialog was not opened
  • Convert Layer Type: Dithering could not be turned off when converting from 32-/16-bit to 8-bit
  • Color Lookup: 1D (gamma only) Cube LUTs did not work with 8-bit images
  • Text layers, underline behind text: Selection area may have been invisible
  • Printing: Complex line styles were printed via the OS, even if it did not support them
  • Lens Correction, Lensfun: For lenses with the same name the wrong lens could be selected in the dialog
  • Lens correction, Nikon: Sometimes the correct lens was not found
  • Gradient tool: changing the blend mode, channels or intensity did not rebuild an existing gradient
  • PDF export: Colorless pixel patterns are now exported as 1-bit
  • PDFexport, fonts, macOS 11/10.16: due to a macOS error sometimes single font tables (GDEF) couldn't be read
  • PDF import, vector pattern: The step size of the pattern is used as pattern size
  • PDF import, vector pattern: A clipping layer is inserted into the pattern if necessary
  • Free Lasso and Magnetic Lasso, Backspace, Windows: The backspace key deleted the last two lasso segments instead of only one
  • Pattern List, Vector Pattern From Document: The new pattern was not correctly inserted into the list
  • Browse, raw images: The thumbnails were saved too large, so switching to a raw directory was very slow
  • Curves, action: Did not save color space
  • Text tool, text layers, layer tool: If a text layer was edited by double-clicking it with the layer tool, the settings of the last active text layer sometimes were used for typing
  • Reduce group to layer: After an undo, the layers in the group had lost their color profile
  • Japanese text input, macOS: crash fixed
  • Layout > Vector > Cut: Could also be applied in invalid situations and then caused a crash
  • Colorless patterns: Were displayed incorrectly

I'm really curios how it works... I mean if there are the big benefits reclaimed by Apple.
